FAQs about whole trout

Although trout tend to spawn in the late winter and early spring, you can purchase and eat whole trout year-round. The fish should smell fresh and mild, so if it smells too fishy, don't purchase it. Avoid packages of frozen trout that have ice crystals since this signals the fish was thawed and refrozen. You also don't want fish that have brown discoloration or dried-out edges.

Once you have the whole trout, store it in the refrigerator for up to two days. You can either keep it in the original packaging or remove it and wrap it in plastic or foil and place it in an air-tight container. If you need additional time, place the tightly wrapped package in the freezer, where it should keep up to two months.

To thaw the whole trout, place it in the refrigerator overnight. To thaw the trout faster, seal the fish in a plastic bag and immerse it in cold water.

A 3-ounce piece of this protein-rich fish has almost half of your recommended daily intake of protein, which fuels your body and carries oxygen throughout your body via the blood. Other vitamins and minerals you'll find in whole trout include:
  • Niacin: The whole trout gives you more than 25% of your recommended daily intake of niacin. This vitamin turns your food into the energy you need.
  • Omega-3 fatty acids: These are essential in aiding brain function, specifically performance, memory, and behavior. They may also help lower your risk of chronic diseases, such as cancer, arthritis, and heart disease.
  • Vitamin B12: One serving of whole trout gives you more than 50% of your entire recommended daily intake of this vitamin, which helps your body make red blood cells and keeps your nervous system healthy.
